My cell phone "seranaded" me out of bed at 4:45 am to run with Ted. He was coming from BYU, and this time I missed him again - there are two ways to get to my house from the trail, I took one, he took the other. I found him eventually. Could not break 8:00 for the first two miles. Could not get HR to go above 111 either. When I found Ted, he was going at a super-sonic speed for me at that time - 6:50. I reluctantly sped up. We eventually wound it up to 6:30 or so. At that point, I decided the only way for me to survive is to pick it up to sub-6:00. Then my mind would go into race mode, and I'd be able to handle the pace. So I did. That made things better in a way.
Dropped Ted off at BYU and trotted back to the trail. Noticed I was right on pace with the 7:30 guy. But I did not feel like staying with him. So I let him go. Then on the last mile I decided to catch him, and finished 10 miles in 1:14:37. Even with all of the accelerations to catch all kinds of guys the average HR was 119. Probably the sleepiest run in the last 3 months.
Ran with the kids in the afternoon.
